    Grid-Interactive Efficient Buildings as a Utility Resource

    Electrification of the built environment will place unprecedented requirements on the nation’s electric utility system. That same system is simultaneously working to reduce, then eliminate, fossil fuels from its supply mix. The built environment offers a critical success path for utilities by incorporating demand flexibility strategies such as grid-interactive efficient buildings (GEBs). This panel brings together leading voices from utilities and national laboratories on how the new utility-customer relationship is evolving and how the built environment holds the key to utility system reliability and adequacy in the age of decarbonization.
